Meet Oscar

Workforce Challenge

Oscar was working day-labor jobs, working less than full-time, and earning minimum wage. He came to Workforce Boulder County seeking assistance with training. Although highly motivated, Oscar lacked the necessary training to achieve his career goals.

Workforce Solution

Oscar was motivated to become a commercial driver, seeing this as a career option that would offer long-term stability and provide a better income. He was enrolled into the WIOA Adult program and took the necessary steps to get approved for funding from the program.

Outcomes & Benefits

The WIOA Adult program awarded Oscar $2500 for training and provided gas assistance for him to attend truck driving school. Oscar successfully completed the truck driving school requirements and earned his Commercial Driver's License. Oscar is now successfully employed with a local construction company as a truck driver and has doubled his wages. Oscar said, "Thanks again, so much, this wasn't possible without you and Workforce Boulder County!! Thanks!"
